Ingredients

  • 4 slices ciabatta bread
  • 1/2 Cup Nutella
  • 2 Tablespoons confectioners' sugar

Directions

Pre-heat an electric panino machine to 300 degrees or heat a cast-iron grill pan to medium.

Place the slices of ciabatta onto a clean surface. Evenly distribute and spread the Nutella onto 2 slices of the ciabatta. Place the remaining 2 slices on top.

Place one of the Nutella filled panini at a five o'clock position onto the pre-heated electric panino machine or the pre-heated cast-iron grill. Cook until grill marks have formed, about 2-3 minutes, and then rotate to the seven o'clock position and continue to grill. Once the grill marks are clearly evident on both sides, another 2-3 minutes, transfer the grilled panini to a clean cutting surface. Utilizing a clean serrated knife, carefully cut each of the panini into 6 equal pieces. Arrange the 6 slices onto a plate and dust with confectioner's sugar and serve at once.

Nutella Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Nutella Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.

Nutella Wine Pairing

Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based desserts; sauternes or sweet German wines with pound cake, cheesecake, and other mildly sweet desserts; sweet chenin blanc or muscat or Alsatian vendange tardive (late harvest) wines with sweeter desserts; sweet chenin blanc or muscat or Alsatian vendange tardive (late harvest) wines, port, madeira, late-harvest zinfandel, or cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts.
